In an effort to explore the adoption and impact of diversity and inclusion initiatives within IT departments, TEKsystems surveyed more than 250 IT leaders (i.e., chief information officers, IT vice presidents, IT directors, IT hiring managers) and 500 IT professionals in April 2016. In this summary, we present the results of the survey and our analysis thereof. Overall, the research shows that IT departments are lagging in their adoption of formal diversity programs and not leveraging them as a business-driven initiative. At the same time, leaders express dissatisfaction in their ability to fill open IT positions with qualified candidates, but don’t recognize diversity initiatives as a potential solution to these hiring challenges.
